What happened to thunderbird


Thunderbird this morning stop working on my computer. I tried to reinstall it but it also desappeared from the list of the available apps!
What happened with that?


Thunderbird Flatpak has been discontinued


Thunderbird has been removed from Flathub, as there is currently no one who maintains it’s flatpak:

From the commit logs, it seems that someone immediately started working on the package again (last commit from yesterday), so probably it will be back in a short time. In the meantime you can grab the build manifest from github and build it for yourself:


git clone https://github.com/flathub/org.mozilla.Thunderbird.git
cd org.mozilla.Thunderbird
git submodule init
git submodule update


flatpak-builder --force-clean --install-deps-from=flathub build org.mozilla.Thunderbird.json


flatpak-builder --repo "repo" build org.mozilla.Thunderbird.json
flatpak remote-add --user --no-gpg-verify thunderbird-repository repo
flatpak install --user  thunderbird-repository org.mozilla.Thunderbird
